Employment Resources and Professions Available to Cryptography Graduates

Cryptographers are employed by all sectors: private industry, the government, and academia. Many cryptographers work for private industries such as large software firms where they work on software security or anti-virus and anti-spyware applications. They can also work for financial institutions such as banks and credit card agencies where they work on database and password security.

Defense contracting companies that focus on weapons for national and/or global security will hire cryptographers, as a lot of their projects have to do with developing software that uses encryption and security techniques.

Many government agencies hire cryptographers as well. This includes law enforcement where they work on counterfeit issues that lead to fraud and piracy or computer forensics (eg. RCMP). They can also work for national intelligence agencies such as CSIS where they work on encryption techniques for national security matters.

Cryptographers can also work in academia teaching cryptography, number theory, or pure mathematics at the university level while doing research
